For 30 minutes Friday, Verizon IndyCar driver James Hinchcliffe sat down with and interviewed NASCAR driver Kyle Larson and fellow IndyCar driver Conor Daly.
The interview, part of Hinchcliffe’s show on SiriusXM Satellite Radio, took place at the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show.
Hinchcliffe started the interview by asking Larson about a photo he tweeted of him sitting in the cockpit of IndyCar champion Scott Dixon’s car.
It was taken during a Chip Ganassi Racing promotional shoot, but Larson said he’s petitioning owner Chip Ganassi to allow him to race in the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 and attempt “The Double” of competing in the Coca-Cola 600.
The driver of the No. 42 also talked about his experience driving in the Rolex 24 at Daytona and his first year of fatherhood.
Hinchcliffe asked him if the rumor was true that when you become a father “you lose two tenths.”
“Maybe, I had a worse year this year,” joked Larson. “I did qualify better.”
Larson also talks about the frustration of not winning a race in his first two seasons in the Sprint Cup Series.
